Rolling roadblocks planned on I-65 in southern Kentucky
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) – Overnight travelers on Interstate 65 in southern Kentucky to the Tennessee state line may find they need additional travel time this week.
The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet says rolling roadblocks will be used over a 54-mile stretch so that pavement markers can be replaced and repaired.
The rolling roadblocks will start Monday night and continue for about a week, starting at 10 p.m. and lasting until 7 a.m. each day.
The crews will start in the northbound lanes at the Tennessee state line and work north until about mile marker 54. When that section is complete, workers will start southbound and continue back to the state line.
The cabinet says Kentucky State Police will be present during the roadblocks. Officials advise using caution while the work is underway and say the rolling roadblocks could add travel time.
